Colorado Springs cottage description

Located in the heart of historic, downtown Colorado Springs, this charming, fully-furnished cottage is in a quiet neighborhood. The sun-filled great room and private patio will be a peaceful retreat for you to relax.

A welcome basket with your first breakfast, snacks, coffee, tea, local coupons, and a pottery gift will be waiting for your arrival. The cottage is fully furnished with everything you could need – as a cook, I love to try out new recipes on vacation! Our kitchen has all the tools and dishes you’ll need to prepare any kind of meal. Don’t want to cook? Our Guest Resource book has dozens of menus from restaurants within a short drive or walk from the cottage. Or call for take out and enjoy a quiet evening in the refreshing mountain air of our private patio. We have comfortable beds, cozy furniture, and TV/Games/Books to fill your leisure time.

Downtown Colorado Springs is an incredible neighborhood of creative, family-friendly folks! There are numerous corner coffee shops and the nearby downtown area is filled with eclectic restaurants, pubs, galleries and shops.

There is a major bus line 3 blocks from the cottage. The cottage has its own private and secure parking spot. The Colorado Springs airport is a short, 10 minute drive from the cottage.

              About the owner: About Nancy: As an artist, I find great inspiration for my pottery and designs in the beauty surrounding Colorado Springs. I particularly love the Aspens! Colorado Springs is a city filled with friendly, creative people and we love helping guests make the most of their time here. We welcome the opportunity to help you plan your stay. About Ryan: As a former corporate marketing and communications executive, I now enjoy a combination of consulting, writing, and woodworking. In this eclectic season of life, I’m focused on friends and guests. Whether it’s helping a business grow, making woodcraft, or getting to know our guests and friends, I find there’s always a good story to be told.

              Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
              We love historical homes and family-oriented neighborhoods. The downtown area of Colorado Springs has both! We love how eclectic and unique each of the homes are, and you're sure to meet friendly folks out on a walk or sitting on their porch. It's a great place to spend time!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The Monument Street cottage has a charm that is undeniable. Across the board, folks who enter the home say, 'Oh wow! This is such a huge and homey place!' We hope that each guest finds the cottage a serene and comfortable place to stay.
